…Create My Own Personal Dashboard?
Goal:
  – Build an Active, Drillable Display of Charts, Pivots, etc.
Challenge:
  – Users only have web-based access
Solution:
  – Use the “new” Personal Pages module to assemble
    zero-footprint content
Resources:
  – Brio v8.0 or higher



                                                 BRIO CONFIDENTIAL   2
…Export to Excel?
Goal:
  – Export a section to Excel from a zero-footprint BQY
Challenge:
  – The zero-footprint mode toolbar only has icons for
    exporting to local BQY or to PDF.
EIS-based Solution:
  – Excel export to a virtual directory on your web server.
  – Use OpenURL() to fetch the Excel file into your
    browser.
Resources:
  – Brio Intelligence v8.0 or higher

…Pass Parameters?
Goal:
  – Pass parameter values to a zero-footprint BQY using a
    SmartCut URL
Challenge:
  – Since zero-footprint mode runs the BQY at the server,
    no Session object exists with which to examine the
    SmartCut URL
Solution:
  – Use the @HTML() pseudo-function to capture the URL
    in a global JS variable
Resources:
  – Brio Intelligence v8.02 or higher
  – Any JavaScript command reference
                                              BRIO CONFIDENTIAL   4
…Let Users Build Their Own Queries?
Goal:
  – Allow users to build queries from scratch
Challenge:
  – Zero-footprint mode does not currently provide a UI for
    this functionality
EIS-based Solution:
  – Use EIS sections to provide the interface
  – Build queries, charts, pivots, etc. in JS code based on
    user selections in the EIS sections
Resources:
  – Brio Intelligence v8.0 or higher
